Babe magnet for the over-70s? C'mon, Mr. Vice-President! I'm a finely aged 32-year-old Texas broad, and I proclaim Don Rumsfeld my Hottie of the Month.

Who's with me on this, FReeper chicks?

Chicks dig a man with a spine. The feminization of the American male has left most men calcium deficient.

Ladies, why can't you admire the man's good sense, good looks, and good character without importing a sexual element, which is properly reserved for those with whom you have a relationship? I had thought the Monica stuff, the Time reporterette stuff was best left to the democrats and liberals.

I was kind of offended when the veep said Rummy's a babe magnet for the 70's set, as I'm no where near that myself! LOL!

Where's the sexual element in what I said? (However, now you mention it . . . )

When oh when will men cease to be seen as mere sexual objects, and be appreciated for their intellect and accomplishments?

Oh, the humanity...

(Now where's my Condi Rice poster....)

The simple explanation is that women are looking for heroes to admire. Admiration of Mr. Rumsfeld and the admission that we find him attractive does not necessarily include a desire for anything more.

There is also the component of anti-Clintonism, in that a man is found attractive for his character and accomplishments, rather than for a manufactured image and a series of "feel your pain" lies.

Besides, it's funny.

I find Cheney quite attractive as well.

Gotta confess. If I weren't married and were 30yrs older... In fact I am married and no where near his age an he is still very attractive. I have wondered if it is the same attraction that Henry the K aroused. It's said women were drawn to him because of his power.

In this case, I think I am just ready to fall at the feet of any pol who stands up to the wash press corp.

Especially, if they have Rummy's eyes and grin....(grin)

I have a feeling Rumsfeld is a much nicer person than Henry K. Did you know after the Pentagon was hit on 911 he rushed outside and tried to help rescue people? I can't quite see Henry bothering with the riff-raff.

(My mother likes Rumsfeld so much she taped the CNN interview!)

I also think part of this is that for 8 years we have listened to the boring platitudes of the Clintonistas. How often have we hungered for someone to speak plainly?

It is also a large component of President Bush's popularity, and Vice President Cheney's as well. The public responds to statements like "hogwash" or "smoke 'em out of their holes." They like leaders who lead and speak everyday English. Rumsfeld is quite blunt, and it is a joy to watch the press corps fold under his attack. Ha!

=80 Rummy's short?

Well, I don't care! He's a hero in a grey flannel suit to me!

(And I'll also confess to thinking he's a hottie.)

Henry Kissinger's more elegant phraseology, "power is the great aphrodisiac."

Uhhh, well,

I won't be changing my name to KissingerChick :-) National Review should have done a search on this site for a few good tidbits to put in their article. After all, we are just swimming with Rummy fans - male and female

I'll admit Rummy's got IT, but for me the President is a 10!!! Our First Lady definitly has excellent taste in men (among other things). Good job, Miss Laura :)!!!
